Default 03 fx4 crooked stance

So I just bought an 03 fx4 II and it appears to have a 3 inch body lift, and while I was just staring at it last night, I noticed that the front drivers side of the truck sags down, causing the whole truck to look All crooked. Is this my torsion bar giving me crap or is it a shock problem? Any help would be appreciated! Ill post pics in just a few minutes

Most trucks lean one way due to the gas and battery on one if the sides on the truck so it makes it look weird. Nothing you can do about it unless you put like 300 pounds on the other side lol

Assuming nothing's broken, the torsion bars can be adjusted to make your Ranger sit straight. Just make sure to do it on a perfectly level surface and get an alignment after it's sitting level.

Ill try that when I get back home. It really grinds my gears, especially when people point it out to me
